Rapper, singer and songwriter Trippie Redd, who has collaborated with the likes of Travis Scott, scooped up a Southwest Ranches estate for $7.5 million.

Trippie Redd, whose real name is Michael Lamar White II, bought the mansion on the 5000 block of Southwest 136th Avenue from an entity led by Mohamed Yacoob, according to records. The buyer secured a $4.9 million mortgage from New York-based GuardHill Financial.

Joe Caprio and Alexander Fernandez of the Joe Caprio brokerage represented the seller. Alex Carnot of Morgan Whitney Realty represented the buyer.

The two-story, 18,923-square-foot mansion is palatial-like with nine bedrooms and 11 and a half bathrooms, Realtor.com shows.

Yacoob bought the 4.6-acre property in 2010 and completed the house in 2015, according to records.

Its features include a chef’s kitchen, two offices, an indoor basketball court with exercise area, wine cellar and an eight-car garage, according to Realtor.com.

The property is so spacious that it easily allows for parking for 15 to 20 cars, Carnot said.

“It’s one of the biggest homes in Southwest Ranches,” he said. “ If you want the seclusion and privacy, Southwest Ranches is the way to go.”

Trippie Redd, who grew up in Ohio, released his first studio album, “Life’s a Trip,” in 2018, followed by his “!” and “Pegasus,” according to media reports.

Southwest Ranches, a largely residential town in western Broward County known for its horse ranches, has attracted big-name buyers.

In March, hedge funder Prasad Hedge, COO of Miami-based 777 Partners, and his wife Ruby, bought a spec house at 4770 Akai Drive for $8 million. The home was under construction at the time of sale.

Others who have called Southwest Ranches home include Major League Baseball player Asdrúbal Cabrera, who sold his custom-built, 9,300-square-foot mansion at 1700 Stratford Court for $7.4 million in October. The buyer was a Delaware-registered entity.

In 2020, former NFL star wide receiver and Miami Dolphin Brandon Marshall and his wife, Michi Nogami-Marshall, sold their mansion at 16710 Stratford Court for $4.25 million.

The South Florida housing boom has pushed up prices to new heights, although it is showing signs of slowing down. In the first quarter, residential sales fell across the region, as inventory was quickly absorbed, according to a Douglas Elliman report. In Fort Lauderdale, single-family home sales dropped by 19 percent, year-over-year, to 556 deals. The median single-family home price in Fort Lauderdale jumped 24 percent from the first quarter of last year, to $649,000, the report showed.
